The mother tree of these seedlings is a blight-resistant Chinese X American hybrid tree with genetics coming from southeast Minnesota – zone 4b. This mother tree is heavy-bearer of extra-large nuts averaging over 12 grams, maximum up to 24 grams per nut. This tree is pollen fertile and is used in several crosses. As is usual with chestnut hybrids, seedlings will be variable.
We sell these trees as potted or bare-rooted. Potted trees are grown from seed each Spring and are available to leave the nursery when they have developed a good root system. Usually potted trees may leave the nursery by late June. Bare-rooted trees are grown in a special bed for maximum root development all summer. They are dug and bundled in late November for shipping the following April. We ship these trees in April while they are still dormant.
